About

The Gürzenich Orchestra of Cologne with its conductor laureate Dmitrij Kitajenko proudly present magical music illustrating the story of The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by E.T.A. Hoffmann and Alexandre Dumas.

A Nutcracker performance can hardly be more authentic than this – especially since the artists are presenting us here with the entire ballet, not merely the Suite (Op.71a).

The ballet is complemented by the Suite from The Fairy’s Kiss by Stravinsky – composed in 1928 and arranged a number of times. It became world famous through the choreography by George Balanchine for the old New York Metropolitan Opera in 1937, later also for the City Center of Music and Drama as well as Lincoln Center, New York.
